Raymond S. Neeser, 34, Waupaca, is charged with burglary, theft, criminal damage to property, possession of drug paraphernalia and felony bail jumping.
Shortly after 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 31, Waupaca Police Officer Paul Benzschawel met with a program coordinator with Fresh Start.
The coordinator said he discovered that someone had entered a locked tool trailer and an unsecured house under construction and removed an estimated $3,368 worth of tools.
Later that day, Detective Sgt. Brian Hoelzel conducted an online search and found that Neeser had sold tools that matched the victim’s description to a Grand Chute pawn shop.
Benzschawel and the coordinator then went to the pawn shop and identified the tools.
Shortly after 6:30 p.m. that same day, Benzschawel and several other officers executed a search warrant at Neeser’s apartment.
According to the criminal complaint, they found more of the missing tools in the garage. Inside the apartment, they did not find any more tools, but they reported finding a glass smoking pipe. And in the vehicle, officers found receipts from the pawn shop.
On July 24, Neeser appeared in court and was charged with 18 counts, including drug trafficking, delivery of heroin, possession of narcotics and felon in possession of a firearm. He was released on a $10,000 signature bond.
On Sept. 4, Judge Phillip Kirk set a $5,000 cash bond as a condition of his release.
